Harrison Ford celebrates his 79th birthday on July 13. Ford is one of the most recognised faces from Hollywood. He is renowned across the world for hit franchises such as Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Blade Runner. Apart from the highly successful franchise roles, he also proved to be an excellent actor with movies such as The Fugitive and Witness.

As of 2019, Harrison Ford's movies have crossed worldwide gross of over USD 9.3 billion, making him at No. 4 on the list of highest grossing box office stars of all time. Ford is also an Academy Award nominee, four time Golden Globe nominee and three time Saturn Award winner.

As the actor turns a year older, we decided to celebrate his birthday with six of the best movies from his entire career that you can stream online now.

Let’s take a look...

1
Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
8.5OTTplay Rating
While the first Star Wars movie introduced us to Han Solo, it was The Empire Strikes Back that cemented Ford as the face of Millenium Falcon’s captain. The movie is arguably Harrison Ford’s career best work. His portrayal of the classic space pirate set an example by which many movies are still made on.
2
Raiders of the Lost Ark
8.6OTTplay Rating
Raiders of the Lost Ark hit theatres in the summer of 1981 and was an overnight hit. The movie made us fall in love with the tomb raider/archeologist/adventure junkie Indiana Jones. Harrison Ford made the franchise so popular that more than 30 years later, fans are still expecting one more great adventure movie from the series.
3
Blade Runner
8OTTplay Rating
This brilliant science-fiction by Ridley Scott showcased Ford struggling in a dystopian Los Angeles where genetically engineered replicants manufactured by a powerful corporation sought control. Ford played a special police operative named Blade Runner who was tasked with hunting down these dangerous replicants.
4
Witness
7.9OTTplay Rating
In this gripping drama by Peter Weir, Harrison Ford plays a familiar detective who is protecting a young boy. The boy is being hunted after he witnesses a murder. Witness earned Ford his only Oscar nomination till date.
5
The Fugitive
7.9OTTplay Rating
If we keep the franchises aside, The Fugitive is probably Ford’s most iconic role till date. He played the character of Dr. Richard Kimble who struggles to prove his innocence after he is wrongfully convicted for the murder of his wife.
6
Air Force One
6.6OTTplay Rating
Harrison Ford plays the role of President James Marshall in this action flick. It follows the president as he battles a group of Russian terrorists. Air Force One was one movie that utilised Ford’s leading man appeal to the best. The film still remains one of the best movies of his career.
